The wind is howling outside, so it seems I will not be taking my walk today out doors :(
Unless of course I use my umbrella and pretend to be Mary Poppins.
Wouldn't that be fun to fly around the town?
Walking is the only thing right now that I can do that is comfortable.
As any good OR Nurse I have lived up to the rule of not being able to escape  recovery from surgery without some awful side affect.
Mine being unbearable right leg pain.
I am now on a course of a fairly high dose of a
drug that pretty much leaves me of little use to either man or beast.
So I sit on my couch and knit and sew watching Netflix movies and series.
I can even re-watch some because I either do not remember the show or I dosed during the show.
I am getting my monies worth from Netflix this month.

The really sad part is that my sister came in for a "Sisters' Week-end". 
I tried to keep my chin up [ ok both of my chins ] during the week-end .

But by Friday things were deteriorating fast, so we did a lot of watching movies and knitting.

We ate a lot and I mean a lot !


Mary Margaret

Caitlin, Erin, Ellen

 Caitlin on her new i-phone and Ellen , both looking up a recipe for French Silk pie. We never 
did find a recipe we liked, so no French Silk this time around.

Mary makes the worlds best pie crust so that is her job on the Sisters' Week-end.

Ellen and I pealed all the apples for a delicious apple pie.

What a wonderful looking pie and the end product was superb. 

We also made a Lemon Meringue pie that was like eating in heaven.
[ I forgot to get a picture of the Lemon Meringue ].
So that is where I have been the past week.
Hope to have pictures of the knitting that I completed as well as some sewing for you all 
in a few days.

Good to hear from you again. Your sister's weekend, with the pies, of course, might have been the perfect medicine for your recovery.
